As the only boy in my family with three sisters, I quickly learned how to treat women! I was born in the Philippines and grew up in Boise, Idaho. My dad worked long hours and each of us had to contribute to the team. This instilled a partnership mentality at a very young age and a skill I took with me throughout life. I knew early on that I wanted to build my own family and support them financially and more importantly, instill values.
I enlisted in the United States Air Force at 18 following my dad's footsteps. After a handful of deployments, tours and training, I had invested 11 years in the military. Fast forward in my career; I met my beautiful wife, Heidi, on a tour in Korea. After bringing two boys into the world, I was spending more time away than being a part of their young lives. I decided one morning, after working a 16-hour shift, I was ready for a change. I made good on a promise to myself that I would become a financial advisor at Edward Jones. I filled out one application a year prior to separating and they told me I was too early and to try back in six months. I did just that and accepted a position December 2015.
My grandpa told me I would have a wildly successful career as a financial advisor if I continued with one trait that stood out to him, be genuine.
I work every day for the families and individuals that entrust their financial assets, plans and goals to us. To show my clients how those lessons learned as a child of hard work, commitment and sacrifice translates beautifully to their investments working hard and in the right balance helping them reach their goals is my passion. Bottom line is, I truly care.
